On October 7, 2009, WHOmentors.com, Inc. facilitated an opportunity for Lisa Li, a graduate from Pratt Institute, to be interviewed directly by Nanette Asimov, San Francisco Chronicle Staff Writer, regarding graduates who were unable to find a job and had returned to live with their parents. Without any interview preparation, Lisa Li unexpectedly stated,
"I expected to have an excellent job in a field that I was passionate about, in a top corporate architecture firm in New York City," said Lisa Li, 22, a graduate of the prestigious Pratt Institute in Manhattan.
Instead, she's back in San Francisco sharing a bedroom with her 15-year-old sister and helping her parents manage their rental properties.
"I feel like a failure," Li admitted. "From this experience, I learned to plan ahead and not to take what you see at face value."
Having a clear sense of her undeveloped talent, WHOmentors.com, Inc. positioned Lisa Li to be the Director and Chief Executive Officer of Ago Quod Perceptum, Inc. which literally translates to "You Live And You Learn."
